in newtown, connecticut. a search warrant is being conducted in hoboken, new jersey. that's where he lived. we know that shortly after 9:30 this morning, walked in to the mother's kindergarten classroom and opened fire. he killed her an he also killed at least 18 children. that's the latest. we'll continue right now. "the cycle" will pick things up from here. >>> 3:00 here in new york. five hours and 90 miles from the mass shooting. we have been following it for you throughout the day ones ms. speaking of newtown, population 27,000, reeling this afternoon along with a stunned nation, after a gunman opened fire just after the start of class this morning. federal sources say he was 24 years old with two guns and shot dead. the suspect reportedly from hoboken made the hour or so trip up north to sanly hook elementary school where his mother taught kindergarten. we're hearing that victims were found inside the kindergarten classroom and inside the principal's office. new jersey governor chris christie expected to speak momentarily about the suspect. connecticut's governor up live this hour, a
not only connecticut but the nation in mourning. he spoke at the newtown vigil last night as both a president and a father. >> we can't tolerate this anymore. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. there's only one thing we can be sure of. that's the love that we have for our children, for our families, for each other. god has called them all home. for those of us who remain, let us find the strength to carry on and make our country worthy of their memory. >> we are joined by pastor rocky veech of connections church in newtown, connecticut, and pastor joey newton of the newtown bible church. pastor rocky, you were also a pastor in denver when columbine happened in 1999. what can you tell us about how a community starts to heal from something like this? >> i think it starts to heal right away with the funerals like here today. and community starts to come together. i noticed living in columbine, that was the beginning. those were the beginning signs of the healing that did take weeks after that. >> you know, this i guess is to both of you. we speend a lot of tim
this legislation through congress and richard blumenthal from connecticut from newtown, connecticut said the nra maid itself irrelevant in the debate. >> the nra's statement today is sadly and shamefully inadequate calling for more guns and rejecting real action against gun violence. at a defining historic moment for our nation demanding courageous leadership the nra has declined to step forward as a credible and constructive partner. >> reporter: so at the very least a tone deaf statement from the nra today and really inflamed and energized the proponents of gun control here on capitol hill. >> thank you very much. let's bring in bloomberg "newsweek" senior writer and is the author of "glock the rise of america's gun." the nra blamed everything but the gigantic number of guns in america a situation which they worked very hard to create. they blamed video games, music, nobody watches music videos any more. they had the audacity to roll out a new product guns for every school. that's good for business. are you surprised of the tact they took today >> yeah. even i was surprised and i've written ab
to connecticut or more in general about gun control, we are talking about assault weapons ban, the gun show loophole, these sorts of things. the experience we had in this country for ten years under the assault weapons ban from 1994 to 2004, there was i would say at best inconclusive evidence of whether it did anything. we have a counter example, though, of australia which maybe doesn't get much attention but fascinating because australia had an assaults weapon ban in response to a mass shooting and investing like $500 million in gun buyback to get like hundreds of thousands of assault weapons out of circulation. something that we did not do in this country. we left millions of assault weapons out there, millions of high-capacity magazines throughout and that number proliferated since 2004 and seems to me the policy prescription that might have an effect goes way beyond anything that's really in public discussion right now. >> well, that's exactly right. what happened in australia was that they had had something like 13 gun massacres in the 18 years before the ban and 14 years since they ha
online. >>> it's become sadly routine in the small town of newtown, connecticut, where more funerals and memorials are taking place today, including those for 6-year-olds katherine lub bard, benjamin wheeler, jesse lewis, allison way yacht and grace mcdon knell. in washington this afternoon, vice president biden met with law enforcement officers as part of the new gun task force announced by president obama yesterday. >> the president is absolutely committed to keeping his promise that we will act and we'll act in a way that is designed even if he says we could only save one life, we have to take action. >> and tomorrow morning, one week after the elementary school shooting, the national rifle association, nra, will speak publicly for the first time since the tragedy. powerful gun lobby has long fought any effort to curb gun ownership but this week they promise to offer meaningful contributions to make sure that the tragedy never happens again and what do we think that looks like? let's put it through the spin cycle. i guess to start with the overall lay of the land i i applaud the p
. responsibility. what's your policy? >>> the school shooting in newtown, connecticut, is a sobering reminder that sometimes guns fall in to the hands of people who should not have them. but what if there was a way to find out exactly who in your neighborhood owns a gun? the journal news, a local newspaper in new york city published a map of the names and addresses of every person who holds a gun permit. as you can see, the map is made up of tens of thousands of dots representing people who own gun permits in westchester county. some people are furious. so is this fair game for anyone wanting to exercise the 2nd amendment right or is it an outrageous invasion of privacy. i have to say this wrang ls for me. no matter where you stand on the debate, publishing names and home addresses in this context is really inappropriate. and look. i understand that a lot of the information is publicly available if you go out and search for it but to me this smacks of sort of naming and shaming responsible gun owners and making them seem as if they're criminals and frankly, you know, i think this is a mistake
